The competition for the best and on the day Expo 2016 was judged by Damien Bates of Aberdeen Journals. The award was won by Fennel Media.


Granite EXPO is a unique event which acts as a showcase for businesses of all sizes, and from all industry sectors across the North East of Scotland, providing them with a platform to exhibit, network and cross-sell to both fellow exhibitors and visitors.

This year marks the seventh Granite EXPO and we are delighted to welcome back Barclays Bank pavilion to showcase clients at various stage of their growth journey. Added to this will be new Pavilions of businesses from Dundee and Angus, and from Norway – both close neighbours to the North East, both looking to do business here, and also to welcome businesses to their regions.

Each year we invite a key business figure to officially open the event and this year we are delighted to have Richard Neville - Editor in Chief of Aberdeen Journals.

You can take part in Granite EXPO 2017 as an exhibitor, seminar provider and/or sponsor.
